The Spencer Davis Group are an Anglo Welsh rock band formed in Birmingham in 1963, by Spencer Davis with Steve Winwood and his brother, Muff Winwood. Their best known songs include the UK number ones “Somebody Help Me” and “Keep on Running” (both of which were written by reggae musician Jackie Edwards), “I’m a Man” and “Gimme Some Lovin’“, which peaked at #2 in the UK and #7 in the United States. Steve Winwood left in 1967 to form Traffic before joining Blind Faith, then forging a career as a solo artist. After releasing a few more singles, the band ceased activity in 1968. By the end of 1966 and the beginning of 1967, the group released two hits, “Gimme Some Lovin'” and “I’m a Man”. Both of them sold over one million copies, and were awarded gold record status. These tracks proved to be their two best-known successes, especially in the U.S.
